When you think of Corporal Dwayne Hicks from James Cameron's Aliens, you automatically picture actor Michael Biehn, who portrayed the headstrong USCM squad leader in the action-packed thriller back in 1986. But before Biehn was cast, actor James Remar was originally cast to play Hicks. Below is a rare collection of set photos taken during the filming of Aliens which show Remar in-character which cropped up on reddit today. Apparently Remar left Aliens following creative differences with the film's dierector James Cameron. It was at this time that Biehn took over the role.
